Barry Mason

Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber talks about Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar, Whistle Down The Wind, Cats,
Sunset Boulevard and Phantom Of The Opera, while dealing with the claim that he is a "control freak", 
and answering the inevitable question - "Will you work with Tim Rice again?"

The current edition includes a 6,000 word interview with Roger Cook - who in the 60's wrote countless pop hits,
before quitting England for Nashville where he proceeded to become one of the hottest country songwriters
around!  Also included is an exclusive interview with one of the greatest singer-songwriters of all time
Gordon Lightfoot, whose songs have been covered by everybody from Elvis Presley to Bob Dylan.

We also talk to Barry Mason whose songs have been recorded by everybody from
Tom Jones to Elvis Presley, as well as country songwriter Tom T Hall whose beautiful lyrics
have earned him the nickname of "The Storyteller".

Bruce Welch was once a member of The Shadows, but was also a very successful songwriter,
penning hits for Olivia Newton John, Cliff Richard and many more, before setting up
an independent music publishing company. He tells us how he did it.

Mike Batt tells us how he made his name writing for television and movies,  while
Tony Hatch has written some of the finest pop songs of recent years,
(as well as the theme for such TV series as "Neighbours").

Johnny Marks explains how he cornered the market in writing Christmas songs,
earning many millions in the process, and finally, Julie Gold tells us how
she wrote one of the most
successful songs of all time - almost by accident!
